    I am going into town in the AM and will be stocking up on some 22lr ammo. This will be primarily for plinking varmints. What is your preference when it comes to brands and such here?

    I am leaning towards the CCI Stinger shells but who knows, maybe I'll try something else based on your recommends...

    Mini-mags are the perfect price to performance ratio for me. Haven't seen anything yet that doesn't digest them.

    CCI Velocitors usually get high marks, too.

    CCI Minimag HPs are my #1 choice, I also use the Velocitors. Stingers don't give the accuracy I want and I just don't think they're worth the extra $.

    I really like CCI Mini-Mags.

    As Wooderson said, Minimags are best bang for the buck.

    Winchester Super Silhouettes 42-grain but I think they stopped making them.

    I've had good luck with cci's small game bullet. A little pricy but very accurate. My 10-22, S & W 17 and 41. and m39 love them.

    My rifle likes CCI Stingers, but the handguns not so much. They're partial to CCI mini-mags. In all of them I'll shoot Winchester Wildcats or Remington Thunderbolts for plinking at tin cans. For more serious shooting or hunting, I always go back to the CCIs.

    Another vote for CCI Mini-Mags. Stingers are too noisey and less accurate out of my pistol.

    I'd suggest buying a box of as many different types of .22 ammo that are available locally. Try them all, and then stock up on the brand/type that works well for your gun.

    I usually buy Federal cause it's the cheapest copper-coated .22 ammo at wal-mart.

    Winchester bulk hollowpoints from Wal-mart in everything but my Colt Woodsman, which doesn't like the wide hollowpoint. For that gun, I buy Remington bulk hollowpoints.

    Oops, just noticed this was a revolver ammo question. Never mind.

    While CCI Stingers are the fastest round available I prefer CCI Velocitors because they are 40 gr instead of 32 gr like the Stingers. They stay true a little better in windy conditions.

    I was at the store a few times this month and I saw something new. (well, new to me, don't know if they are really new) CCI has a SGB round out that's supposed to be specifically made for Small Game. You might want to buy a box of 50 and give them a try. (If you do please make a report LOL) The SGB load has the same velocity and energy as the Mini-Mag but it's a LFN round for penetration. I would say a flat nose round would probably be the best hunting round. http://www.cci-ammunition.com/ballistics/rimfire.aspx

    Aguila Super Maximum's 30 grainers achieve rifle velocities out of my revolvers. The are cheaper and faster than Stingers.

    I like Winchester SuperX. Reasonably priced, easily available, functions flawlessly in all of my .22lr firearms, and seems to be quite accurate.

    I've been happy w/ the Wolf match target rounds for reliability and accuracy, but I'd get other opinions on their potential as a varmint round. Wolf compares favorably to CCI price-wise.
